The Houghton Trail Event

The Houghton Trail 32k Cycle Ride

The Route

The 32k Mountain Bike Ride follows a separate route from the 14k ride and starts ahead of the runners. The trail also boasts stunning scenery, with one or two steep hills. The cyclists go off before the runners and take a different course so there is no clashing! Walkers start behind the runners.

A few years ago we increased the length to approximately 32.94k. See route traced in 2014 by GPS on the Garmin website (thanks Christopher Clark.)
